I Don't Want to Adult TodayFriday, May 22, 2015
Internet bill. Netflix bill. Gas. Electricity. Water. Rent. Student loans. Alarm clocks. Business Casual. Overtime. 401K. Taxes.
These are adult things. These are the things that turn your hair gray, make you stress eat, and make wonder if you should gamble that dollar on the lottery or buy a burger at McDonalds.
These are the things no one tells you about when you're 10 and wanting to run away from home so you can be an adult and eat ice cream whenever you want, skip school, and stay up late.
Being an adult does have some advantages but for those days when you Just Can't Even.
Why don't you try some of these things and release your inner flower child.
1.) Leave the work emails Unread.
It's okay. They will still be there tomorrow. Believe me.
2.) Sing in the shower.
The reason people love to sing in the shower is the crazy good acoustics. So go ahead and belt out those high notes, inflect those crazy warbles, and rock that shampoo mic.
3.) Bake something.
Or eat the dough right out of the bowl. Go ahead and ruin your appetite.
4.) Go outside.
Whether it's with a blanket and a book or your dog and frisbee - go outside and enjoy it! Take in the sounds of nature, the smell of the grass and dirt, & throw that frisbee as far as you possibly can.
5.) Don't get out of bed.
Except to pee and get more food.
6.) Get a kid's meal.
Remember when you would beg your parents to just, please, one time get a kid's meal with the cool toy and this was the last time you promise?
7.) Cuddle up with your furbabies.
I think this one is pretty self explanatory.
8.) Watch all the Disney movies!
And yes of course you can sing along.
9.) Watch some nostalgic cartoons.
Rugrats. The Flintstones. Life with Louie. Bobby's World.
10.) Camp outside in your own backyard.
There may still be creepy bugs but at least you know there won't be bears and you don't even have to worry about wiping with leaves.
For those days when you just can't even, what do you to get through it?
